Simple Baked Salmon with Avocado Salsa

This has been my favorite way to cook salmon lately. My go-to recipe is my teriyaki salmon , but our family has been doing the whole 30 challenge this month and so sugar is out for us. This salmon is super easy and versatile. You can put whatever veggies you want, even frozen! We have been doing tons of zucchini and summer squash from our garden. Another obsession lately for my kids survival over this month (especially my almost 5 year old) is anything with avocados. Guacamole is the new ketchup around here! lol. This salmon is yummy just with a squeeze of lemon, but even better if you top it with this "avocado pico" as we called it tonight. Y-U-M!

Simple Baked Salmon

Salmon Fillet (about 1 1/2 pounds or as much as you need)
any veggies, fresh and cut up or frozen
garlic salt
olive oil
lemon slices

Preheat oven to 425. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Place salmon, skin side down, on prepared baking sheet. Season the salmon with garlic salt and pepper. Arrange veggies around the salmon. Drizzle some olive oil over the veggies and season with salt and pepper. Arrange the lemon slices over the salmon and cover entire baking sheet with parchment paper. Bake in preheated oven until salmon and veggies are done, about 15-20 minutes. (The salmon will flake easily with a fork when it's done). Top it with the salsa below for extra flavor

Optional Avocado Salsa
1-2 avocados, diced
1/2 small red onion, chopped fine
juice from 2 limes (about 2-3 Tbsp)
3 Tbsp finely chopped cilantro
salt to taste

Mix all ingredients and chill until ready to use. Grill or broil the salmon to your preference. Top with avocado salsa and enjoy!
